Traveling with kids in a city as chaotic as Rome isn't always easy. With so much to see and do, a trip to Rome can exhaust anyone. So it's important to find ways to relax while you're in town, keep the whole family entertained and experience a taste of local life.
Family travelers to Rome will no longer have to scour the guide books and kid-friendly sites - that you could just about drown in - to find the most unique family-friendly activity in the city. Because there's a new attraction in "The Eternal City." And in a city that exudes old, new things are pretty big news around here.
Eating Italy Food Tours, Rome's original and premier food tour company, has moved into the cooking classes arena. But not just with any same-old destination cooking school. Rome's new Pizza School for Kids was designed with kids in mind - right from the songs through to the cute little pizza chef hats.

The course is 100% family friendly, and it seems Eating Italy has thought of everything. In fact, during this 2.5-hour activity, there’s something for both kids and parents to enjoy. Children will spend their time deeply involved in pizza-making fun, all the while playing games and learning about the history of pizza.
Meanwhile, the parents get to sit back with an Italian aperitivo, snack and pizza. It's a win-win situation.
Everyone comes together at the end of the night for a sit-down pizza meal, where the kids get to marvel at their very own creation. And the meal ends as all meals should: with real-deal Italian gelato.
Designed for kids aged up to 10, Pizza School for Kids is open daily (except for Sundays) with courses held in the late afternoon. The location is a pizzeria in the working-class foodie neighborhood of Testaccio, located a short distance from the historical center.
The course is run by an English-speaking guide and a Roman pizzaiolo (maker of pizza), and they will hold the kids' attention from the moment they arrive.
